you are very correct in saying sizes dont match from store to store.
I find it frustrating when buying clothes especially online, and when buying jeans, sometimes a 28 doesnt fit, but a 24 does from another brand.
I have some brand new online bought jeans which are wrong shape for me, and I need to ebay them.
women have different body shapes, apple, pear and the matchstick, so sometimes even tho two ladies might be same height, same weight, one wears a 12 and the other a 18.
can get very hard to know what to buy. I think many people tend to stick to their favourite shops as they know the sizing there, as what I do. I would say kmart is a smaller cut then say target, in my opinion.
I think people also have alot of clothes, maybe 50% in their warddrobe that dont even fit, that they keep for the *one day* and hope they might fit one day.
I wish there was a national sizing guide, where they get a broad range of women, and make clothes to fit as standard.
but another point to consider is how you wear your clothes.... again, 2 women, same weight and height, might wear different sizes as one prefers her clothes long and loose, the other likes them tight and showing muffin tops etc.
